AS THE swelling crowd waited in anticipation for DJ Fresh to take to the stage, it was clear what they wanted to hear – the hits.

And the dubstep pioneer did not disappoint when he opened his hour-long set with a medley of his most highly acclaimed songs, including the old favourite Golddust.

It sent the crowd into a frenzy of dancing, which proved to be the theme of the night as the bass thumped through the sound system and the tunes kept coming.

Behind a raised keyboard and in front of a web of triangles made from LED lights (an image taken from his current album, Nextlevelism), Fresh was backed by a full band.

We heard Louder, Hot Right Now, The Power, and The Feeling, as well as a number of covers with a uniquely Fresh twist.

The crowd threw triangle-shaped hand gestures at Fresh in appreciation of his new album.
